Tokyo: Dinner with Penguins

I’ve been to lots of animal cafes in Japan, but this was a first…

Penguin Bar Tokyo

Penguins! Lots of them! At a small bar in Ikebukuro, where you can eat up close with them while you watch them and they watch youPenguinI took my friends here a few weeks ago and it was a pretty rare chance to see penguins in such close proximity.

The place is almost twenty minutes’ walk from the station and a little tricky to find if you’re going for the first time, but once you’re nearby the sign’s easy to find! The penguins are a giveaway. Also since it was a bar and not my usual dinky cafe scene it was a different environment from what I was used to with the dim lighting and occasional pack of smoking businessmen.

At least they had cute hand towels. We never used them in the end because we didn’t want to pull the penguins apart.

And here are the penguins looking on as we eat one of their kind. We had the fried chicken from the side menu!

My main dish was gratin with a giant prawn poking out of it. It was hot and cheesy and a very good choice of mealgood

If you’re looking for a new experience in Tokyo or just really like penguins, I recommend this place for dinnerkirakiraIt was nice to eat dinner with my friends and occasionally look up and see a bunch of penguins waddling around. The staff take good care of them too, so they seem happy!
